Printmaking Postage - Simon Says Stamp Kisses Release

Good morning! I went a little crazy with a fun new stamp set from the recent Kisses Release from Simon Says Stamp - it was such a fun stamp set to use, and once you've lined up each layer, you may as well stamp multiples in different colors, since it is almost no additional work! I played with all the color combos for this! :)

I did two cards with each color combo. First off, I stamped several with the outline image in black ink. This was where I started for each combo, using the lines on the stamp to line up each layer with. Then I stamped that layer once in the outline image, and once on white cardstock in each color.

When I finished them all - this is the softer image you get with no outline. I did feel like the penguins needed the eyes and the beak added with a little pen - they looked a bit creepy without that to be honest! So I also added a couple more details to other places on the design, just so the black details were a bit more spread out.

Once they were all done, I stamped a sentiment from the set in the little opening in the image, and then created a white frame using Stitched Rectangles die, and popping that up with foam over them. I also added some Pinkfresh Glitter drops in coordinating colors to embellish. Here is a closer look at each color combo, both with and without the stamped outline:

First up, this Cantaloupe, Cheeky, Surf, and Pucker, along with Aqua Glitter Drops.

This color combo used Grapefruit, Guava, Lemonade, and Spring, paired up with Leaf Glitter Drops.

Next up, we have Marine, Sprout, Sunbeam, and Cadette, together with Lagoon Glitter Drops.

And finally, this one uses Twilight, Sherbet, Pearfection, and Sweets, paired up with Amethyst Glitter Drops.

I really can't decide which style I like better - with or without the stamped outline, or which color combo is my favorite! Although, the coral, pink, and aqua tones at the front may just be my favorite if I had to choose!

I love how quick and easy it was to create all these cards with this fun stamp set as well!
